2018 Benoit Camus, Chateau Roulant
Benoit farms four hectares spread over eight parcels around Ville-sur-Jarnioux in Beaujolais’ south. The terroir is complex. Predominantly limestone, with some clay, granite and marl in the mix. He lives there in a caravan hidden away in one of the parcels he lovingly refers to as ‘Chateau Roulant’. Three and a half of those hectares are planted with old vines of Gamay and he also grows a little Chardonnay.
Gamay from vines up to sixty years old, from a number of parcels and terroirs. This spent two weeks as whole bunches in concrete, before being pressed off to a mixture of concrete and cuve for nine months of élevage. 2018 has more darkness and depth than previous years, with the limestone soils helping to maintain brightness.
